Cruise Dec 2016 - Lost 3 Pounds on the Cruise!

Just got back from my cruise with Mom- going to go unpack and then maybe practice golf. Posted a long post on the forum to hopefully help some JCers. Wanted to post my cruise photo (not the best outfit - but it was the last night... and I just threw shorts on).... It was tough eating so clean (steamed veggies etc). But I was really grateful to be so much thinner then the 205+ pounds on the last cruise in August. Losing a bunch of weight is such a thrill!!!!! Will be pretty hard when the thrill i

Day 3 of 2017 NewYear's Challenge

So I started this Blog so i would have a place to log my exercise and how I am doing with my JC Challenges. My goal for this challenge is to lose 17 lbs or so and workout 3 times a week cardio and 2-3 times a week with weights. MY feet hurt a lot lately - even at the grocery store... and I don't go down many aisles. So i have been running lately using the Running app. Decided today to do my cardio on the Arc trainer (Cybex). Hard to figure out what would simulate the running portion vs the walki

Sue Wore A Dress

So one of my favorite stores is Dress Barn... I grew up in a family that would only shop in Bloomingdales.. so this is quite a controversial move.. but I just love the dresses and clothes that I think thin people wear!!! I have a pair of their Signature Fit shorts on now   So I picked out a ridiculous dress, in a ridiculous size... and wore it to see my client in Houston yesterday.   So without further ado....

Sue's Muffin Review

OK So they were ok - by no means were the muffins (see prior blog entry) the same as Jordan Marsh Muffins circa 1970 (and 250 calories each, according to the recipe I posted in My Fitness Pal. I made the recipe using Emily Bites muffin recipes - based with oatmeal. I swapped out the sugar for Truvia baking Blend and they landed at about 80 calories.  I took 2 frozen muffins out of freezer into fridge last night, popped them in micro for about a minute and had them with coffee. A lite breakfast -

Orange Theory Weight Loss Challenge

So On JC I have lost  a lot of weight -and am very grateful.. However - I decided to finish strong... or transition to maintenance strong...  Sol today i got weighed in at the gym for my OT Weight Loss challenge - supposedly 6 weeks but officially starts Monday - so it's a bit longer. So weight was 154.4 I think (with sneakers). We were told to wear a tight outfit. So I sort of liked working out in the outfit... Anyway I am amazed that I am this thin (in clothes) and I know I don't hav

So Should I cut my hair?

So most of my life I had short hair. You jumped in the shower and wham it was so fun - afterwards you juts put gel in it - and were ready to go.... Photo below -I was about 30 or so ..not sure - after OA at about 140-150 lbs.... x Photo of me now - so can I cut my hair????  The idea is to do one hair cu or the other - anything in between is still alot of work and will drive me crazy on golf course and at gym.... I use ponytail on golf course and at gym with my long hair. It is naturall

Plastic Surgery

Warning Controversial Posts - As I imagine some of you are against surgery....So you may want to skip this one....   Hi Guys - We' ll for years I have been thinking of getting plastic surgery on my breasts. After losing 100 lbs in Overeater's Anonymous I had a tummy tuck (abdomnioplasty) and thigh skin removed etc (lipectomy) but skipped the breasts. The Abdomen surgery tightened the muscle and removed a ton of excess skin. The thigh = left a pretty big scar, but also got rid of extra

March 1st Challenge 2017 Photos

Happy New Year! For the record it's Jan 2 - and I started this challenge officially 12/31.   I'd say new me - but I am so glad I joined Jenny (seriously) in August! I guess the new me will be someone who keeps the weight off - and doesn't have being overweight define me.  Had a few pictures taken at the gym to mark the start of this challenge - I had dribbled water on me - so I realize the picture is a bit strange. But it's still a way to mark the start of this challenge. i certainly c

JC Forum Post that so Inspired me

OK So here's what one of the maintenance posters ChristiS wrote that has me all fired up:   "I like being able to tie my shoes without feeling my belly press up toward my chest.  I like all the great clothes I can wear without feeling too "lumpy" in them.  I like feeling like I made a decision and took charge of it.   I still love food as much as I ever have.  But, Jenny has taught me more isn't necessarily better.  All things in moderation.  Also, every day I make decisions

So anyway - with no further ado.. I bring you BadA$$ sue with a message of peace. Oh and today I am in solidarity with @Crayola64we are not eating mindle

Travelling with Jenny - Time to take it back a notch

OK So these past two weeks I have been staying at a hotel in Atlanta and eating out for most meals (though they have Publix and Whole Foods... so I did not have to) . Also Drinking wine (a couple of glasses) each night. Net net weigh in this morning - I will be up a pound or three. People say the eating comes form stress- I think it also is insecurity, So surrounded by really bright stars from my company on ,my new project doing something I am not the worlds leading expert in (go figure). creati

Growing Up with Showtunes, Streisand and My Parents

So last night my sister (Jennifer), her hubby (Mike) and Mom and I went to see Barbra Streisand at the BBT center. It was amazing - and part of what's special is having my family there as well. Barbra is 74 - and my Mom is 78 so I remember watching Funny Girl with my mom and dad - and singing the songs. I think I know all or most of the words to Don't Rain on My Parade.   So I have never been to a concert with my sister , her hubby and my mom before - so that in itself was special. Well rea

You Tube Fitness Videos

So some of you know I have been working out at my fitness class I take (Orange Theory) but tonight I was inspired by SFMOM who was dancing at home. So I searched for dance videos... and found one that is a little Silly - but got  me up off my chair and sweating - and not heading right to dessert and bed.   So I think I will see if I can keep this up for 7 days. So this is the 7 days of you tube videos... None of them are my videos... and I have a bunch that I love that  really work you

I cooked Emly Bites muffins and have no idea how they taste!

Success!!!  I followed the recipe more or less - I substituted 1/6 cup Truvia Baking blend instead of light brown sugar, and blueberries instead of peaches.. but alas made the Emily Bites Muffins.. I calculate about 80 calories each with my sugar replacement. Going to have two for breakfast one of these days - or even out on the golf course.    Victory - I made them and did not snack on them!!! http://www.emilybites.com/2017/03/raspberry-peach-baked-oatmeal-singles.html

Fitness Video Finds

Thought I would share some videos I do to add a bit to my day. I fond doing a you tube video is really fun - and not nearly as hard as treadmill or going to the gym. It is an awesome way to pass time when you want to eat!! Also just a good way to get your system moving as well.   You can do at your own pace - or level... I cant do pushups so I modify what they are doing.. I think I have come along way exercise wise - but everyone starts somewhere. Enjoy and let me know your thoughts.

Getting Thinner is Amazing

Loving getting the weight off. Yesterday I shopped a bit for fun - and bought these adorable leggings for workout. Who knew??? It is soo much  nicer to be in a more mainstream size body then my highest (246.25) or recent starting weight on JC 207.8.   Yippeayecayeaye - 30 pounds to go...and I think I will enjoy the steps along the way   And yup I wear two bras to go jogging... Why cant' they make good fitness bras? Ok I digress.

Weigh In Blues

Off to weigh in today, just not feeling like I lost anything at all. I have been lazier this week .... even today not going off to golf. Seems I am not very motivated. Foods been ok, except for two extra glasses of wine yesterday.    Going to to the gym... I hope.. really not too motivated and will do a splin class and then see my JC consultant. Will be great to see here..as it's been three weeks as she was away last week.    Anyway boring post,  am feeling boring.
